Spring Hill is a community which straddles the border between Maury and Williamson Counties, in Tennessee. It has a population of just under 8,000 people, as of the 2000 census.
Spring Hill is the site of the famous Battle of Spring Hill, of the American Civil War. Spring Hill was also the location of a manufacturing plant owned by the Saturn car company, but it closed in 2007. However, the plant re-opened in 2008, having been retooled to manufacture other vehicles produced by General Motors, Saturn’s parent company. But, the factory once again was idled, in 2009, causing over 2,000 workers to face layoffs, early retirements, and buyouts.
The legal community of Spring Hill is served by the Williamson County Bar Association, located in Franklin, Tennessee.
Given the troubled nature of Spring Hill’s economy, the auto plant in particular, there is likely a demand for attorneys who specialize in employment law. While a good employment lawyer cannot create a job where there isn’t one, he or she can help ensure that your legal rights as an employee are protected, and that, in the unfortunate event that you’re laid off, you have the best possible chance of collecting unemployment benefits, to help you get back on your feet as soon as possible.
